Sand - the natural element has always fascinated manby and large.He has seen a leeway in it to creativity and worked on sandcastles to create miniature versions of his dream edifice. This very passion has mothered an inspiration for the architectural fraternity to extract the essence of sand and manifest it in their work.
The designers have seen the long stretches of sand not as a symbol of isolation, but as that of peace; the simplicity in its beauty is brimming with life, and not devoid of it. They have long yearned for its vibrancy and powerful appeal to be a part of the buildings they construct. It’s their way of making a connection with Mother Nature.
Let’s go back to history. An earth-like feeling in man-made constructions was desirable, even in the ancient days. A special mention goes to Roman architecture, which was hugely devoted toward the setup of robust buildings. Remember the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the city of Pompeii?
'Opus caementicium' - the Roman concrete, was a significant contribution to all constructions. Aspecial type of Italian volcanic sand called ‘pozzolana’ went into its making so that the natural beige beauty of the erections remained intact.The strength was invincible and the look matchless.In many ways, the success story of this architectural concept was about a lot of experimentation, brainstorming, and the zeal to come up with new ideas every time.
However, the magnificence of this classical architecture has undergone a transformation in contemporary times. Man has modernised his ways, including his approach towards erecting buildings. Today, the architectural firmament contemplates blending the charm of sandcastles into contemporary designs that are more responsive to modern times.
